Warner Bros. is doing everything in its power to make us not want to see this movie.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Brit comic Rowan Atkinson, better known as the bumbling Mr. Bean, has signed on for the villain role in the live-action version of Scooby-Doo. The trade paper claims Atkinson’s character will be named Mondavarious.
If that isn’t enough cheese for you, Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s Sarah Michelle Gellar will play Daphne with her real-life beau Freddie Prinze Jr. taking on the role of fictional beau, Fred. (Not much of a stretch there.) Wing Commander’s Matthew Lillard is taking on the role of Shaggy, with Freaks & Geeks star Linda Cardellini as the brainy Velma.
The plotline is reportedly being kept under tight wraps, but that’s okay because no one really cares about the plot to this one.
